OCTOBER FLOWER OF THE MONTH

October Flower of the Month : Marigold

The Marigold

Marigolds traditionally symbolized despair and grief over a loved one. It may be surprising that such a cheerful flower is associated with the dead. However, for many cultures, its those neon-bright orange and yellow hues that represent the sunrays or light paths that guide their dearly departed. The bright orange and yellow hues representing the beauty and warmth of the rising Sun, and its power to resurrect. Today, we often focus more on sunny colors of the marigold, representing optimism and prosperity.
